Evaluation

*Average:    3.86
Also known as Hale'Iwa Beach Park and Turtle Heaven. Excellent multi-level dive, particularly if you enjoy photography and turtle-watching. I've dived here roughly 90 times, and never seen fewer than 15 turtles, averaging 20 per dive. Turtles are 6'/2m long near the drop-off, and 2'/1m in the shallow channels leading back to the grassy shallows. Excellent phone, toilet, and shower facilities in the adjoining park to the west. Often still divable in Winter, when all other North Shore dive sites are pounded by large surf. The long walk across the shallows may be intimidating to people with weak legs. There's a dive shop within 5 minutes' drive toward Hale'Iwa town. Be sure to visit the Wyland Gallery with its sea-related artwork, while in this area.
